Ayesha and Geoff, I also could not find the Crowd server hardware requirements. With 50 users, I would expect you to be able to run Crowd on the Confluence minimum required hardware:

CPU: Quad core 2GHz+ CPU
RAM: 6GB
Minimum database space: 10GB

Disk space will not grow much as Crowd doesn't store any attachments on the file system like Confluence does. My local installation of Crowd takes less than 300mb disk.

I opened a request for our technical writers to post a page for Crowd like: Server Hardware Requirements Guide.

Here is the request, in case you want to comment or vote on it: Crowd Server hardware requirements guide is needed

Crowd is a lightweight compared with Jira and Confluence, you'll probably struggle to buy a server that can't handle it nowadays.

I know of one running on a raspberry pi with 1 Gb Ram, for a small site with only 20 users.  It seems fine to us, although the pi is running only a cut-down OS, Crowd, some basic monitoring and a backup routine.

For a bigger site, Crowd runs fine in the default 512Mb, and the database can also be relatively small - I doubt you'll hit a Gb of disk space even when you've got thousands of users.

I am looking for an Atlassian recommended Server Capacity for crowd installation for an approximate 50 user site. Thank you.

@Nic Brough -Adaptavist- Hey Nic, do you have by any chance, information for a sizing of 1000 users and over that to share?

Well, actually, that Raspberry Pi I mentioned 5 years ago is now handling 2,500 users, serving as the directory for a near complete server stack of Atlassian services.

@Nic Brough -Adaptavist- Can i assume your PI is a new one with 4GB RAM and 4+ cores?

Originally, it was a Pi3, but that was running hot.  It is now a Pi4 with 2Gb RAM.  I'd still not recommend a Pi for this, it should be a proper server, but it doesn't need to be hugely powerful.
